In honour of the passing of Olivia de Havilland at 104 years old and Hollywood’s very last Golden Age star, we screen the marvelous Technicolor swashbuckler The Adventures of Robin Hood. De Havilland starred in eight films with bad boy actor Errol Flynn where she often needed on-screen rescuing from her off-screen love interest. But as an actress she held her own in the often brutal studio system. When she became an instant star at nineteen with Gone With the Wind she was able to carve out an impressive and long lasting career stretching six decades and bagging three nominations and two Oscar wins along the way. A true movie star that didn’t shy away from putting in the hard work and giving it her all with often nuanced and daring roles.
